    Get A Better Tekken

    I played the Tekken series out of order, 2, 3, 1, which is probably why I'm a little cold towards this one. It is slow, with probably the worst ,as well as smallest, selection of characters. There are also very limited v... Read Full Review

    There is nearly no entertainment to be found at of Tekken at all.Its a standard fighter that is slow,sloppy and boring.

    Tekken is an every day fighter that does really nothing to the fighting genre.People worldwide hail Tekken for being "Revolutionary",but yet there is not a single revolutionary thing about it. So,in Tekken you can pun... Read Full Review

    I thought the game was bad in 95' and its absolutely crap now!

    Really i cant say much good about this game only that it created the great tekken series. The graphics were only ok back then and they are seriously dated now. I thought that Sony were trying to make a point that the PS... Read Full Review

    A bad game and by far the worst game in the Tekken series.

    Now I love the Tekken series but I just don't like Tekken 1. Just about every other Tekken games is FAR superior to this. Tekken 3 was my first Tekken game and the was the 3rd or 4th one I ever played. This game doesn't ... Read Full Review

    It's the first Tekken. So then you ask the question, is it good?

    Tekken...A legendary game. This is a great mid 90's fighting game that is worthy of getting recognition from the creators of Mortal Kombat. The gameplay rocks (but it's kinda hard), Theres enough characters to make you c... Read Full Review

    The orginal is still worth playing

    The original Tekken isn't awesome but it's still a fun arcade game. It has the old classic characters like Kazuya and the old school Yoshimitsu. Although it's old it's still fun. I recommend playing this game with someon... Read Full Review

    One of the best fighting series out in the market today.

    This is the game that made a series that was popular for a decade to enjoy. Also, one of the games that competed with Sega's Vitual Fighter series and won. When playing this game, there are the basic elements at a f... Read Full Review

    Pretty decent, but could have been done better.

    Tekken is one of the most popular fighting games out today and few are able to match it. There are about 7 games in the Tekken series I know of and naturally you would expect this to be an instant classic or something gr... Read Full Review
